Jackson Browne/Sara Watkins

For four decades Jackson Browne has been the quintessential Southern California singer-songwriter. Graced with strong, often hummable but never obvious melodies, Browne's folk-rock has supported particularly literate lyrics that are at times deeply introspective while connecting to universal experiences. His last studio album, 2008's Time the Conqueror, issued on his 60th birthday, reaffirmed his role as an activist while acknowledging mortality issues. These days Browne is on an acoustic solo tour. Expect a cavalcade of hits, plus maybe the odd nugget from Woody Guthrie. Browne contributed harmony vocals to some cuts on Sun Midnight Sun, the latest solo album from opener Sara Watkins, of Nickel Creek fame. (Photo by Craig O'Neal)
